Trash & Recycling Schedule - Lookup by Street Name
The following is a brief description of the disposal services provided to Colleyville residents by Progressive Waste Solutions (formerly IESI):
All containers and bags must be left at curbside or on the street no later than 7:00 a.m. on pick-up day. Garbage should not be placed at curbside more than twenty-four (24) hours prior to pick-up day.
Weight specifications - No more then 50 pounds for any single bag
Many times a seemingly missed trash pick-up is the result of bags and containers that exceed the weight limit accepted by IESI. While the company works to accommodate even oversized loads, sometimes the containers are so heavy that they cannot be picked up manually by IESI service personnel and must be left behind. IESI does not use automated trucks for trash service in Colleyville. Residents who use large trash receptacles, particularly 64- or 95-gallon trash containers, are reminded that trash in these containers must be bagged so that each weighs no more than 50 lbs. Multiple bags, as long as none exceed the 50-pound weight limit, are acceptable.
Any disruption in garbage or recycling collection will be announced through the city newsletter and posted on the front page of this website. For additional information regarding schedules, routes, and garbage or recycling customer service, please call Progressive Waste Solutions at 817.222.2221 or visit online at IESI.com.
Household garbage and trash are collected from single-family residences twice weekly. Items must be placed on the curb and contained in a secured bag, box, or can, or tied and bundled and be fifty (50) lbs. or less in weight.
Brush, tree limbs, and fencing must be tied in bundles not to exceed four feet (4’) in length and fifty (50) lbs. in weight. Up to four (4) bundles will be collected per pickup.
Bulky items, including stoves, furniture, hot water heaters, dishwashers, etc., placed on the curb will be picked up as part of the regular collection service. Customers are allowed four large-item pick-ups of up to four cubic yards per year. Additional large-item pick-ups will be billed at $9 per cubic yard, with a $48 minimum.
Construction or renovation debris may be collected through IESI for a fee. These items require special equipment and, without special arrangements, can slow service for others.
Items that will not be collected include construction debris, building materials, dirt, rocks, tires, oil and oil filters, batteries, and hazardous wastes. IMPORTANT NOTE: Federal law prohibits collection of air conditioner, refrigerator or freezer units unless certification is provided that the CFCs have been removed by a certified technician.
For non-bundled brush stacked at curbside, Progressive Waste Solutions will remove brush for a fee. To arrange for this service, contact Progressive Waste Solutions at 817.222.2221 or visit online at IESI.com. A representative will quote a price for the disposal based on the amount of non-bundled brush.
Landfill Access: Colleyville residents do not have free access to any area landfill. Dump charges are based on the weight or size of the load and will vary from site to site. Disposal of biodegradable items (tree limbs and brush) may be less expensive if taken to an area composter.
Household Hazardous Waste Items - Colleyville residents can dispose of household hazardous waste items (pesticides, paints, chemicals, etc.) at the city of Fort Worth’s Environmental Collection Center (ECC). Take a recent water bill with you as proof of residency. The ECC is located at 6400 Bridge St. between I-30 and Loop 820. Fort Worth charges Colleyville a set fee per load, so please offer to also take your neighbors’ sealed containers with you. Automotive items such as freon and motor oil can be taken to local automotive stores. Please contact the automotive stores before taking items.
The following hazardous materials are prohibited and NOT collectable:
